Abstract

Since 1939, the date of the Project's inception, the team has operated under the direction of two lead agencies - the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The supporting agencies are the Agricultural Research Service, Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Federal Highway Administration, and the Tennessee Valley Authority. Overall direction of the Project rests with the Subcommittee on Sedimentation, Interagency Advisory Committee on Water Data. The Project's goals focus on improving and maintaining the quality of fluvial sediment data by (1) developing sediment samplers, laboratory analyzers, and automatic gages (2) evaluating methods, (3) standardizing equipment and methods and (4) procuring, calibrating and selling equipment.
